Apart from track 7, which is a tune I suddenly remembered (I think I made it up a couple of years ago but never named it), these are all solo saz improvisations. Apart from a few little splices and fades, they're unedited and unprocessed.
1 and 7 recorded inside the ancient yew tree in All Saints churchyard, Alton Priors, Wiltshire
2 and 5 recorded in the church
3, 6 and 9 recorded beside the nearby holy well or 'Broad Well', an example of a 'laughing spring' (clusters of bubbles cascade upwards!)...'Broad' is here a distortion of 'Bride' a.k.a. 'Brigid' the Great Mother Goddess
4 recorded beneath a pair of massive beech trees on nearby Furze Hill
8 recorded on a windy day up on nearby Knapp Hill (hence the wind noise on the microphone)
the mysterious plaque in All Saints Church, Alton Priors
